Water is called “the Universal Solvent” because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid; water dissolves gases in the atmosphere, so even rainwater is not “pure water.” The water from the sink, shower, and toilet is a solution and therefore conducts water VERY well. When you understand that your body is also approximately 70% a solution of water and other chemicals, you understand the danger your family faces with electricity in your bathrooms.
Clean water is essential to human health and hygiene. While keeping clean we add chemicals like soap and shampoo, making water a very good conductor. Electricity makes the bathroom very convenient—illuminating hygiene regimens and keeping you warm. Some common bathroom appliances, such as space heaters and hair dryers, carry a lot of currents, the dangerous part of electricity. Wow!
